Title Lon and Mary Bell Snow Lowry
Description of opportunities for growth, especially in the recreational world. The improvements at Palisade were many, more boats and a nice baseball diamond below the dam which was used by towns of Sanpete. There were games played every week Bathing houses were built, a small lodge, hot dog stands, a willow bowry with willow tables and seats, which was the place Sanpete County Schools came for a May Day or special day. A dude ranch was built east of the Otteson home and rodeos were held on a small-scale set up. The finest and largest picturesque open air dance hall was built atop the hill west of the lake. The view of Sanpete was spectacular Music and orchestras were in the most part good music, coming from as far away as Indiana One of these bands' B-flat base tenor sax player married one of Sterling's beautiful girls, Riva Funk. On a moonlit night, with the reflection in the lake, the view from the dance hall was wonderful In these years, many things changed Mary Bell Lowry was especially interested in the town's Young Women In the fall of each year, she would take the girls and chaperone them to Roy, Utah, to work for a few weeks during canning season for the tomato crops. She taught them in the YWMIA. Mary Bell also started the first school lunch by cooking food at her home and, with help, she carried it to Sterling School and took the children a nice hot lunch. One other interesting and exciting beginning around this time was the winter sport of playing hockey on ice, which was started by a group of Manti youth. no
